what we offer:​

As musicians ourselves, we offer an understanding of the product your average agency cannot. dogBowl is a retaliation to the increasingly homogenous music offerings out in the world. Your wedding is the biggest day of your life, why should the music be off-the-shelf? Your brand launch is offering a unique experience to your customers, why should the music be one-size-fits-all? 

With dogBowl producing the music for your event, you get:

  • a huge range of options, from jazz duos, chord-less brass trios, fully amplified funk bands, up to 20-piece carnival bands.

  • a bespoke and personal service to tailor a band's size & set list to your event and budget.

  • professional live band performances featuring musicians at the top of their game, reacting to the audience in real time.

  • music packages to cover all aspects of an event, from afternoon background music, through headline band sets, all the way to late night DJs.

  • no clip-on bow ties, braces, or cheesy costumes - all our musicians dress for the job.
